Dry-Aged Beef
Dry-aging meat is a technique that allows the natural enzymes present to break down the fats, protein and muscle tissues, resulting in improved depth of flavour and texture of meat. In Singapore, the technique of dry-aging beef has been catching on in recent years. With more F&B establishments offering dry-aged steaks of various durations, people in Singapore are being more discerning with the type of quality of meats they purchase.
Swiss Butchery at the Tanglin Post Office is one of the pioneering grocer to retail the dry-aged beef, it is a free service we provide with any purchase of our meat. Customers can speak to any of our experienced staff for recommendations regarding size and cut. You can now purchase high-quality dry-aged cuts and enjoy it at the comfort of your own home.

At the event.. how can we not have wine to pair with the meat?

Over there we tried some of the BEST Wines from Corney & Barrow!

They carry Fine Wines from all over the world with a big focus on Burgundy (Domaine Leflaive, Chateau de La Tour, Marquis d’Angerville etc) and Bordeaux region.

At over 230 years old, Corney & Barrow is one of the longest established Independent Wine Merchants in the UK. The original shop, opened by Edward Bland Corney, was on Old Broad Street in the City of London, selling a small selection of Port, Sherry and Bordeaux. Our Head Office has remained City based ever since.
Still privately owned, Corney & Barrow has grown nationally and internationally, into every sector of the market. We have sales offices in London, Edinburgh, North Yorkshire, Hong Kong and Singapore. We also run shops in Newmarket and Ayr, having acquired the Scottish Merchants Whighams of Ayr in 1994.
Private Customer, Trade, On-trade (restaurant) and Corporate teams run out of the Edinburgh office and the London Head Office.
Corney & Barrow aims to offer carefully-selected, honestly-priced wines that not only deliver quality and value for money, but also a sense of place. We want to offer benchmark styles; wines which we believe to be the best examples of a wine style, country, region or sub-region, whether they are wines to drink immediately or wines to lay down.
Where possible, we aim to build exclusive relationships with suppliers, making our selection of wines unique. We work as closely with our suppliers as we do with our customers and it is particularly this which differentiates us as a wine merchant. We strongly believe in the benefits of doing this, most importantly it allows us to bring our unique selection of wines direct to you, the customer, with no intermediaries.
Domaine de la Romanée-Conti, Domaine Bonneau du Martray, Comte Georges de Vogüé and Clos de Tart are some of the leading estates exclusive to Corney & Barrow in the UK. These wines are sold en primeur and through the secondary market where we are able to ensure impeccable provenance of the wine.

Here are some of the wines we tasted during the event.

- Cabernet Sauvignon, Domaine de Saissac, Vin de Pays d’Oc 2014
- Cuvée Violette, Anjou, Clau de Nell 2011 – 92 Point Robert Parker

The grill is quick and easy to use, ready in approximately 5 minutes and retains heat for 60 minutes or more. It creates a high and even temperature distribution that ensures your food is properly cooked with that crisp BBQ finish. 
The CasusGrill is perfect for that no frills no fuss BBQ gathering.
